We say that someone who is easily wounded or offended is sensitive. No, true sensitivity means being completely open to the beauty and light of the divine world and closed to all the ugliness and absurdity of the human world. So, what is generally called sensitivity, that is, our ability to feel upset by indifference, scorn, criticism and humiliation, is in fact only susceptibility, sentimentality. Oh these poor unhappy souls, for whom heaven, angels, friends or beauty do not exist, but only unfair, malicious, ill-intentioned people! You must not confuse sensitivity with sentimentality. Sentimentality is the unhealthy expression of a poor, mean, narrow, neurotic ego. Sensitivity, on the other hand, is a higher degree of evolution, which brings humans into contact with the heavenly regions and enables them to resonate with all the beauty of the universe.
